was held in washington tuesday by the national association of latino elected and appointed officials also known as naleo. this is about 45 minutes. [inaudible conversations] >> good morning. we're going to get, we're going to get started with our briefing this morning. the presentation on election 201 by the naleo fund, the national association of latino elected and appointed officials. we're two organizations, one is a membership organization of ofe nation's latino public servants serving county commissions, state legislatures all the way up to members of congress and the united states senate. the naleo educational fund is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, nonpartisan organization whose mission is to promote the full participation of latinos in the american political process. that includes encouraging legal permanent residents to become u.s. citizens, encouraging all u.s. citizens 18 and older who are eligible to vote, we also provide training opportunities for latino elected and appointed officials, and we promote a policy framework to make sure that participation in our electoral democracy is acc
latino voters up compared to just two months ago. they find 45% of latino voters say they're more likely to vote, up 8% from just ten weeks ago. the poll also found support for the president matching an all-time high this year with 73% choosing president obama. let me bring in msnbc and nbc latino contributor victoria defrancesco soto, a senior fellow at the university of texas. >> greetings from austin, chris. >> an article in "the washington post" talked about president obama's election strategist david plouffe being so crucial. it depends on plouffe's ability to activate the latino, african-american and young voters who have a more erratic track record shows up at the polls and thus often not up counted as likely voters. the article says plouffe took that voter base for granted. do you agree with the poll. are you sengsing growing enthusiasm among latino voters? >> we're seeing growing enthusiasm, and in particular we see that enthusiasm grow over the past ten weeks. latino decisions has been tracking latino enthusiasm for the past ten weeks. it started out at lower level and increase
is not making the call. the booker decide in many cases who comes on. >> in 2009, the naacp, the national latino media council signed the memorandum of understanding with abc, nbc, cbs and fox. we needed to know who was working in front of and behind camera. we have something on out. has there been progress? yes. incremental. we have to push harder because of what came out of here. this is a report and what he did, he interviewed 900 people on what the thought about latinos. 3000 people on what they thought about latinos. they were all white people. what they thought coincided with what news did looking at. we put into timid in their, television news, radio and journalism. if they were young and new atinos, they tended to have good attitude about latinos. they were older and watching fox news, they did not think very highly of us. the beer not patriotic, not intelligence, that we are taking jobs away from americans. 30% of them thought that it% or more latinos were here without documentation -- that 50% or more latinos were here without documentation. we are 55 million strong in this country. 12
, an important constituency. "the new york times" reporting that both campaigns looking at latinos as deciders in three swing states. that's colorado, nevada, and florida. however, mitt romney trails the president among latinos at the moment in a recent pew poll. when you look at phrases like self-deportation, the issue of the use of illegals, which is seen by tb latino community as being very insensitive, how does this resonate, then? how does this show that the romney campaign does, indeed, value this constituency? >> well, i'm a latina, from florida, originally, now in virginia. but i have to tell you something, immigration's an important issue and governor romney has made it very clear that he has a long-term plan for immigration policy in this country. where he's going to be working with both parties. but, you know, for the hispanics, it's about the economy. and you look at a recent poll from fiu, basically saying that nearly half of the latinos believe that obama ended up breaking that promise. secondly, more than half of the latinas also believe that obama is basically not -- you know,
, to the latino community. notable he will be there as well. >> very interesting. thanks very, very much, jim acosta in littleton, colorado. >>> all right. this just coming in to cnn. the results of our brand new poll among latinos all over the united states. certainly one of the country's fastest growing and increasingly important groups of voters. look at this. it shows overwhelming support for president obama. he leads mitt romney 70% to 26% among likely latino voters. let's bring in our chief national correspondent john king joining us from denver, the site of the debate tomorrow night. john, you've taken a close look at these numbers. are there any nuggets in there that may be good for the romney campaign? because 70% of latinos saying they're likely to vote for the president of the united states, that's pretty bad for romney. >> reporter: wolf, i've scrubbed the numbers, looked at the cross tops and in a word, no, there is nothing encouraging for the romney campaign in the poll of likely latino voters. one way you judge an incumbent president, president obama, you ask people what do you
politics calculation of women's votes and latinos questions. romney will be doing better with everybody. i think you will see poll movement and the narrative will change. we have to wait and see. >> that could be true, mike but why did mitt romney feels he would not deport young voters and allow hem to have visas. you see him tweaking on specific issues that are of terest t hispanic voters and others, you see him changing on policy because he's not addressed issues. >> no, absolutely. >> and that ... it was 70% for obama. i mean you can't win a republican can't win, i don't have to tell you this as a strategist with anything south of 40%. i think mitt romney was 20% -- >> i've been hollering this for three years on the republican party about latinos and there's no doubt romney is moving just like obama had to move issues in his campai. romney's been late to it but i'm for doing it big like he did tonight and more of it. >> rose: i want to get john back in but katty go ahead. >> this is giving obama the benefit of the doubt about it of conversation. the obama campaign -- >> rose: that was
. when he's talking about the latino community. at that point was off the record. that's now been agreed it's on the record. why has it taken so long, four years, for the president to reach this point on immigration reform and why should people believe it will happen in 2013 if he's re-elected since it did happen in the first four -- didn't happen in the first four year. >> look at the latino and hispanic community and what they saw in the debate stage from governor romney and rick santorum and rick perry. i mean look, these are folks that -- to say they alienated the hispanic latino communities in this country is an understatement. that's why you see support in states like nevada and new mexico, virginia and florida and ohio from the latino and hispanic communities. these are votes that the president has earned based on the actions he's taken on behalf of the community over the last 12 months, not just the last 12 months but three and a half years, and i take the president at his word that's something he'll pursue in a second term. so the record is very, very stark as it relates to the
, the president will go west. the latino vote is critical to nevada. when you got a dead heat race that either candidate could win, you're going to spend a lot of time and a lot of hours on the road and because you have to go from nevada to new hampshire to florida, got a lot of ground to cover. >> the president acknowledging how important the latino vote is. this is something the president told the des moines register, apparently kind of off the record, the quote now coming from an interview, a transcript of which the white house released just this morning, saying this is off the record, i will just be very blunt, should i win a second term, a big reason i will win a second term is because the republican nominee and the republican party have so alienated the fastest growing demographic group in the country, the latino community. so that acknowledgement there. he says it is off the record, it was his intent, it seems as though to be on the record as making it very notable that the latino vote is pivotal. >> this was an odd one, fred. the president called the editor and the top officials of des
, the latino community." a direct quote from the president in that interview. meanwhile, republican challenger mitt romney is facing another distraction in the interview of abortion rights for women. cnn's national political correspondent jim acosta is with the romney campaign in reno, nevada. >> reporter: in what's now a horse race to the finish, mitt romney was rounding up votes in nevada and trying to stay on message on the economy. >> the president doesn't understand what it takes to get this economy going. he doesn't have a plan to get jobs for americans. i do. and that's why i'm going to win. >> reporter: romney's in the midst of a swing state blitz flying from colorado to nevada to iowa to ohio then back to iowa, back to ohio and then onto florida and virginia. >> this is that issue that every candidate for federal or state office -- >> reporter: but a new distraction cropped up where richard mourdock made jaws drop with his comments on why abortion should be outlawed in the case of rape. >> i came to realize life is that gift from god. and i think even when life begins in that horrible
the latino vote and what this crucial voting bloc wants to hear from the candidates. [ male announcer ] there's a better way... v8 v-fusion. vegetable nutrition they need, fruit taste they love. could've had a v8... >>> welcome back to "early start." 42 minutes past the hour. the latino vote will be critical come election day, both democrats and republicans furiously jockeying for their votes. some latino republicans are putting pressure on leaders in their own party, imploring them to do more outreach while focusing less on immigration. soledad o'brien has been following both parties for a year in nevada. >> i'm anderson cooper in las vegas. tonight, the presidential candidates come here to win the west. >> reporter: in october 2011, the republican presidential candidates rolled into town with their money and their message. >> herman cain, let me start with you. would you build an entire fence along the entire border and would you have it be electrified? >> i will build a double walled fence. >> reporter: there's tough talk on immigration. >> we have enough border patrol agents to oversee th
strong of "roll call". >>> and president obama is showed with an overwhelming lead with the latino voters, in fact, 78% say they would vote for him if it was held today. the state only has six electoral votes, but 76% of people identifying as latino, it could be a window into the november results. joining me is john ralston, host of "ralston reports." so that is a big number, what do you think of president obama's support among the latino voters. >> well, i think there are a couple of things going on, the exit polls in nevada showed that barack obama won, but i think mitt romney got himself in trouble with the latino community with the positions he took running to the right in that primary. and now, that is hurting him here in nevada. also, you have to -- realize that the democrats here, especially the culinary union, which is heavily hispanic, has been registering voters at a remarkable clip the last couple of months. and while it is hard for me to believe the margin is that big, alex, it is pretty big. >> hey, john, are nevada's latino voters unique in some sort of way, that we can't ta
strongly for obama boem. recent numbers show latinos still favor the president, but they want to hear more about the issues that are most important to them. they don't want their vote taken for granted. miguel marquez has more. >> reporter: out of the shadows wanting their voices heard, their concerns on the agenda. >> tell me why you're here tonight. >> we're here asking both of the candidates to look at immigration in a more humane sense because none of them are doing so. >> latino students hope to hear something that spoke to them. they never got it. >> they have too many issues that i'm passionate about. i'm still waiting to hear. >> what are you passionate about? >> i would definitely say immigration, education. >> with the president who won 61% of colorado's latino votes in 2008, that same energy for many latinos just isn't there. >> four years ago barack obama, i had his back. he very much spoke to me, but now i'm hearing the same rhetoric that i heard four years ago. >> still, there are 400,000 latino votes in play across the state. both sides courting them heavily. >> mr. presiden
that this morning. i want to remind everybody to tune in this weekend. my new documentary "latino in america: courting their vote" sunday 8:00 pm eastern and airs again at 11:00 pm eastern. "cnn newsroom" with carol costello begins right now. have a great weekend. hello, carol. >>> good morning to you. i'm carol costello. breaking news on the economy. new jobless numbers are in. guess what? the unemployment rate is now below 8%. so let's had head straight back to new york. christine romans is there to break these numbers down for us. good morning, christine. >> good morning, carol. 7.8% is the unemployment rate now, fell from 8.1%. and 114,000 jobs were created in the month. carol, there's another number here, 86,000. that's how many jobs were add in july and august that government auditor didn't notice in the beginning. they revised their numbers. actually, july, august were stronger than expected to the tune of 86,000. 7.8% unemployment rate. what does that mean? the best since january 2009. when we dig within these numbers, carol, we can also see that some 418,000 people entered the workf
constituencies that could alter the situation, particularly in florida. we're going to start with latinos here. we've got two recent polls that show a conflicting picture on who latinos in florida support for president. a miami herald florida international university poll shows obama beating romney by seven points. but a tampa bay times miami herald poll shows romney up by two points. so you're a member of romney's hispanic steering committee. what are you seeing on the ground as far as latino vote goes? >> the latino community has been hit really, really hard by this recession. if you look at, for example, children in poverty, the largest group of children in poverty are the hispanic latino children in the united states. poverty has increased among latinos. unemployment, frankly, is excessively high. there are no jobs. really in the entire country, and that also stands true for florida. so, when all the rhetoric is said and done, the question is, are -- do our grandchildren and our children deserve this? is this the best the united states can be? or do they deserve, and frankly do we deserve,
like it is a ploy to get the conservative latino vote? >> i think that it is a little bit of desperation. it is something you might have expected months earlier. what's shocked me kind of up until this point is romney was pushed so far to the right in the primary because he was really worried about santorum and all of them, perry and because he had this history as the governor of massachusetts and had a reputation as being more of a moderate, he -- especially on immigration really took a hard right position, to the right of rick perry, to the right of almost everyone else running and he never really tacked back. he's kind of stuck with that all the way through and i think finally he may be starting to realize well, we need something to offer. the problem is at this point a lot of the perceptions and a lot of the perceptions of romney really historically negative for an actual nominee of the party. have sunken in. so i don't know if you can really make a fundamental change in how people perceive you. but he's got
is a felony popped up in predominantly african-american and latino neighborhoods. prison sentence for voter fraud. likely targeting former felons that have a right to vote. clear channel, we are sitting in a clear channel studio. they announced that they would take down the billboards after the sponsor refuse today come forward. the company is donating 10 billboards declare voting is a right, not a crime. >> that's good. nice. >> stephanie: the judge ruled, pennsylvania we had a call yesterday, chris the judge ruled pennsylvania voters without photo i.d. could still cast a regular ballot. state sponsored ads have continued to tell residents they must show i.d. they are ads are on radio and it. v. and mailed to seniors via a precipitation trouble program. billboard targeting spanish speakers continues to misleadingly promote the i.d. requirement. and we have talked about this a lot. several -- excuse me, present ceos are pressuring their employees to vote for romney saying they may lose their job in obama is ele
in colorado where last night's debate was held is latinos. they're more optimistic about the economy than nonlatino white voters. still, six in ten latinos say the economy is in poor shape. a separate poll found a majority of latinos think the economy is a more important issue than immigration. so no doubt the latino vote will be key. coming up this weekend, soledad o'brien follows two people in nevada who are trying to tip the scales in their party's favor. watch "latino in america: courting their vote." that is sunday at 8:00 p.m. >> interesting. >>> 43 minutes after the hour. confusion about early voting in the tampa area. the election supervisor says a call from organizing for america, a democratic community organizing group, prompted hundreds of phone calls about early voting. the call was actually about filling out absentee ballots at election offices. early voting, which is different, doesn't start until the 27th in florida. >>> issue number one in america, jobs. who has them and who can create them? cnn fact checking both candidates' claims about the job market. that's coming up f
in milwaukee and in ohio and some latino communities. we know that these billboards are put up to intimidate people, scare them off from voting, because there's a lot of mythology around what happens if, for example, you vote and you didn't pay your parking tipgts or you vote and you didn't pay child support or you voted and you didn't show up for jury duty. those kinds of things make people think, oh, no, i need to stay away, and so what we had to do is we have to educate voters. we have to do a countervailing balance because we know that there are people who don't want african-americans and latinos to vote. >> let me ask you about this countervailing because it seems to me that part of what happens is if you take what folks are meant to be doing, what their actually jobs are, and you say, okay, instead of doing that or you have to do that but you also now have to educate voters, have you to put up new billboards, then you actually add this kind of additional burden, this additional cost to folks for just attempting to vote. is that what this is? it's sort of in the end that no whaert what
bank take better care of foreclosed homes in white neighborhoods than in black and latino neighborhoods? and is it happening where you live? >>> tigers versus giants. it's happening tonight. we'll talk to two of their former pitching greats. jack morris, i love him. >>> tropical storm watches up for the southeast coast of florida and maybe impacts across the entire east coast. forecast coming up. "newsroom" starts right now. >>> good morning to you. thank you so much for joining us. i'm carol costello. we begin with new revelations that could cast a large shadow on the presidential race 13 days before the election. they involve the deadly attack on the u.s. consulate in libya and new questions about what the white house knew and when it knew it. as you might remember, the obama administration has been under fire for being slow to label the military-like siege an act of terrorism. four americans died in that attack, including the u.s. ambassador to libya, christopher stevens. here's the latest. cnn has obtained government e-mails showing that just two hours -- just two hours after the at
different than most people than african- americans, latinos and women saw it. so i don't think you see a lot of people thinking, for example, that barack obama deappreciatated the presidency, they were happy, they saw him as a leader, and they felt that he was finally showing leadership skills during that last debate performance. so it is interesting to see that mitt romney's numbers are ticking up. but if you look at favorability ratings, his numbers are still not good. >> mort. >> i think the debates have been the passaic river ole moments in this -- the pivot ol issues in this campaign. more importantly from mitt romney's point of view, he came across as being presidential. he came across as being knowledgeable, he came across as being articulate, logical, so i think he transformed his image to a lot of people. >> mitt romney? >> yeah, mitt romney. >> i thought he came across as being incredibly rude and disrespectful of the presidency. oh, the first debate. >> yeah, that's just the first debate. in the second debate, if i may say, so if there's one person who really in a sense unbalanced
.o.s. does the polling for one sub-group, latinos -- >> so you're the conspirators on the left wing of the polling. >> barack obama is ahead by 50 points with latinos. the question is, their enthusiasm was less than 2008. that is another aspect. >> my thinking had been, while it was mathematically possible for romney to get the electoral votes without ohio, michigan, pennsylvania, that was like a three or four-cushion shot in pool. is ohio what we should be looking at more than anything else? >> that is a good question. it is much easier for mitt romney to win the presidency if he wins ohio. i entered this election cycle believing that there were three key states instead of just florida and ohio. i would add virginia to that list. the next half level down is north carolina. clearly, governor romney is stronger in florida and virginia. those are very competitive states right now. all i know is someplace where he does need a significant comeback. fred's points are well-taken. for a lot of voters, the election started last night. if he is going to have a comeback in ohio, it started la

in the latino and among the 18 to 29-year-old voters. they are just not enthusiastic at all about him. the president has got to get himself up above 50 and the strategy that he has adopted i think is unlikely to get him there. >> sean: we will get to that you mentioned that in your column today. first of all started with some of the swing states. how confident are you that florida north carolina, indiana, they turn blue to red. >> i would add virginia into that as well. republicans are well poised to take colorado and new hampshire today. >> and florida? florida, north carolina and virginia are in the republic camp and becoming more so virtually every day and particularly if you take a look at the early vote in florida. banking more votes but banking more people less likely to vote. that is to say more of the democrat early vote in most of these states. ohio for example, 42% of the early vote that the democrats are banked are people who have voted in three out of the last four elections. those are the people who are going to vote no matter what. what you want to be focused on is you w
